So it seems if you were at Olympia and have barbell in your screen name, you certainly knew of him prior to his car purchases. I just don't get it. Who was watching him prior to the cars? His workouts are terribly constructed, he eats garbage and cranks stims incessantly. He has zero useful information, unlike Jeff at AthleanX or Derek at MPMD. Yet he isn't funny like Uncle Dom (Mike) at Bro Science. So, who exactly is his audience? Maybe guys who watch O'Hearn and believe he's natty?
I know of him, since having interests in the bodybuilding industry you tend to know who’s out there but I don’t personally know him or follow him. He’s an ex con who basically started off gaining popularity (probably from the younger crowd like guys in their teens or early twenties) by sharing his diet and workout methods he was doing, while doing time.
That type of audience will only get so far if they don’t find correct dieting and training methods that work for them and instead will eventually rely on blasting gear to make up for the gaps that they couldn’t fill with lack of proper knowledge.
I do agree his diet and workout methods are definitely not my style nor as many others. Not really a fan of the whole ramen noodles and other crap he preaches but he’s able to get away with that due to his fast metabolism and being “enhanced” definitely increases nutrient partitioning so it makes things easier to be loose on the diet a bit. He can definitely get away with doing that much training volume and intensity as opposed to the natural lifters workout who won't be able to recover from that amount. The training volume and intensity will definitely be different between the enhanced and the natural lifter obviously.
There are plenty of those out there in the bodybuilding and fitness world to look up to such as the few you mentioned are good examples. I’m definitely not a fan of those who preach that they are “natty” and sell fake dreams to kids when these kids or young adults will never reach that level of muscularity because of the gear usage that they aren’t talking about which is there major selling point to the naive.
There are guys and girls out there that are enhanced and are open about it and that’s ok, or those that are on it and don’t talk about it, but don’t go around saying that they are “natural” when they really aren’t.
